Re-do On One of the "Rollin On The River" Paintings
I re-painted one of the "Rollin On The River" paintings, because two people whose artistic opinion I respect, told me that the dead tree trunk did not read as such. So I split the tree, as it went up the foliage covered levee, into branches. I think this gives more of an impression of a dead tree and has a less rigid look as compared to my first painting. What do you think?...now be honest, pretty please.
I painted Highway 50 over the Sacramento river and I another (more lyrical) tugboat painting.
